    Some lucky ones got it by accident not even aiming for the recipe, and some that were aiming for this got it also really fast, whilst others like me are in the thousands and thousands.
    Fish in the off line world don't dedicate themselves to someones hook whose been fishing for 25 years over someone whose casting for the first time. Though that first time fisher might now be encouraged to take it up full time and turn it into sport as well as leisure.

    Life is weird.

    From my perspective, it seems that no developer would have a problem with it. They would grind away casually, smiling because they know they can always spawn it in. There's a difference to a Dev 'grinding' to a player grinding. We have no confirming it will happen, whereas a Dev can whistle away at their rod instead of sweating, sighing when they get a 2+reel and it turns out to be a seer eel, etc.

    TL;DR: Devs have it easy, doesn't mean it's easy.

    This is Rift. A land full of illogical happenings that makes the game better. Need I say more?

    EDIT: Gotcha on the re-quote yup sounds like a typical game or an interaction with/hunting an animal to me!

    Also: Devs have said time and time again throughout the passed 4/5 years they also play on their own accounts normally anonymously so they can actually play that has no Dev modes on it.

    "Said"

    Makes it less believable...

    I know I left my tin foil hat around here somewhere...

    I don't use any dev powers on live for any personal gain. That's career suicide, but people are more than welcome to believe what they like.

    I'm also up to almost 1,000 fish and no sign of the tackle box yet.

    seems to me based on all the comments its just a very rare drop and can be found in any POW area shallow or deep. Just my 2c.

    Obviously not legit, totally photoshopped. Description matches logic

    Ah, I see your point there. I've been an administrator for some minor games (Kicked out due to my pointing out of fallacies) and I usually note that developers have it mostly simple and RNG is nothing to them. Guess you guys are better than that!

    Also, the playing of the game and learning how frustrating it is can get you guys some feedback from yourselves! That's a practical tactic!

    I'm beginning to wonder how much blood Uncle Stan will have left after I beat him with the rod he designed once I have that SUPER SECRET LURE.
